4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, fustrating time killer 16 July 2008
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The story of Secret Files: Tunguska plays out like an indiana jones movie/ tomb raider game plot - in a point and click style adventure. The story is engaging enough to keep your interest, but not too in-depth or confusing to detract from the game.

Its no great shakes with the puzzles, which takes the old fashioned "combine A with B and use on C, and then D will happen" format, but enough thought has gone into them that they aren't tedious, and MOST require a reasonable amount of thinking to get the job done.

The pointing and clicking is also great - the (surprisingly gorgeous!) backgrounds are static, but the character is fully mobile, so you have to roam around the screens to solve the problems: the opposite of games like CSI.

The length is spot on - I think it works out at about 10-12 hours long all in, so would be great for holiday travelling, long journeys, rainy days off etc. And that's another nice thing to it - you can very much pick-up-and-play - you can save and switch off at any point, and its very easy to pick up where you leave off.

It doesn't get a perfect 5 from me for two reasons however:

1 - And I think this is the biggest flaw - A fair few of the puzzles - maybe 15-20% - are utterly, totally illogical and/or non-intuitive. You therefore end up frustrated after wandering around desperately thinking you MUST have missed something, then stumble onto the solution by fluke - just by literally clicking on any and everything in sequence, so there's no satisfaction when you solve it, and a degree of irritation (not because you feel stupid for missing it, but because there's no logic as to why doing that would work!)

2 - there's no increase in difficulty. Its as easy and hard at the start as it is all the way through.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Point and Click Adventure 16 Feb. 2009
By Crafty Marie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't be put off by the bad reviews as I almost was!

This is a really good point and click adventure game. If you like games like Broken Sword, you should enjoy this.

You play predominantly as a female but some quests involve also switching to the male character.

The puzzles are pitched at just about the right level - not too easy so you just walk through the game but not so hard that you sit for hours or even days wondering how to progress.

The logic used in the game requires a creative mind - some of the items you would never combine in real life but if you have a good imagination you can work the puzzles out with a bit of creative thinking.

Great game, enjoyable plot, exciting adventure. If anything just a little bit too short as I wanted to play more.

Well worth the price, would have paid double.

I just bought the game today. Got to play it for a few hours. My inital thoughts were YES!! I love games like Monkey Island (classic Amiga game) and Broken Sword (another classic series). This game operates similar to these. Although it seems to be not as overtly witty. What you do is, go around and talk to people, find objects and use them to interact with your environment. If you like this you'll probably also like hotel dusk. Although this game uses static back grounds rather than Dusk's 3d first person navigation. But dusk is quite a humourous game and has a unique a-ha "take on me" comic book style. Beautiful looking game. Anyway, they don't make too many games like this (Tunguska) unfortunately. I would recommend Tunguska. If you like your point and tap adventures, chances are you'll like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 12 Jun. 2009

This is a really enjoyable point and click puzzle game. You spend your time collecting objects, which you then use in combination or on their own, to make your way through buildings and areas. Some of the puzzle combinations don't make any sense at all and I only progressed by accident on a couple of occasions by trying every object combination! I would definitely recommend this game and recommend you don't seek out a walkthrough, this would make the game far too short, it's not that long as it is, perseverance is the key if you get stuck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and with a good storyline. 23 Feb. 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed playing this game as so often the storylines are thready and end dismally. This one didn't though.

The plot is about strange goings on in Siberia when in 1908, a massive explosion occurs which triggers massive destruction. Fast forward to modern day and Nina one of our main characters, finds her Father has disappeared or has he? She and her boyfriend Max then set off on a series of adventures to find out where he is and even if he is still alive. Quite frightening in places but in a good way.

The game isn't overly difficult but I have to admit that I did 'cheat' a couple of times (oops).

This game is probably for older kids because of some of the language used but in general, the dialogue is pretty funny in places particularly between Nina and Max.

Highly recommended as there appears to be a paucity of this kind of game for DS platforms at present.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definately worth a play! 26 Aug. 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Having previously played Hotel Dusk on the DS, I decided to buy Secret Files: Tunguska.
I was very impressed! It kept my interest from beginning to end. The storyline was interesting, along with the cutscenes which helped move the story along.
The only bad point in my opinion would be that sometimes the items that you need to combine to enable you to progress through the game didn't always make sense! I found myself quite frustrated at some points and even resorted to the use of a walkthrough, which kind of dampens the feeling you would have gotten had you been able to solve the problems yourself! The only other downfall would be that the game could have been longer as I was disappointed when it came to an end!
Having said that, it really was an enjoyable game to play and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the point and click genre of game.
I've just purchased Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis, which I can't wait to play and hope its as good if not better than Secret Files: Tunguska.
